The Ultimate Summer Nest
By The Scout Guide
Simplify the layers: Our bodies release heat during the night as part of the sleep cycle, so anything that prevents our core temperatures from dropping is key.
- The closer your body is to the feathers of down, the better.
- Forgo a flat sheet, blanket, coverlet and other layers. Use just a soft fitted sheet and light-weight down comforter encased in a cotton duvet cover.
- Your body breathes better and your internal temperature regulates faster.
- Great combination: Siberian down comforter; with just 12 oz. of feathers, it weighs less than your average pillow!
